New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Cutting Clay Flue

    I have been looking for the thread but cannot find it. I am looking to cut my Flue out of clay 13x13 flues. I was reading in a post about cutting them and tapering them to work properly. Does anyone have any experience cutting them and what should I know?
    Thanks for the help..

    I used a angle grinder with masonry blade. Worked pretty well, but kicked up some of the nastiest orange dust I've ever seen. Wear adequate safety goggles and a good respiratory mask.

      I used an angle grinder with a diamond blade. It is nasty but not anything to worry about. My thread may have some pix or info, but I know Les' thread does. Its not really a big deal.

        It's an angle grinder job, as mfiore and exceloven said. There's some pictures of the process on my build, linked below.

        Just a question: 13 x 13 is a huge flue, far larger than any oven needs. Is there a reason you're using such big tile? That's what they make for huge mansion sized fireplaces.

          The 13x13 is all that I could fine around here. I find that odd but that is it. Cutting it was a whole lot EZ'er than I thought it would be. I was able to taper the flue the way I wanted and cut to fit the dome also. Should not worry so much and just do it…..
